    Only do once on strategy start

    Hi guys!

    I have tried a couple of things but I couldn't find a proper way to do this.

    I want to run strategies that perform a one-time action on the start of the strategy (i.e. set a variable value, make an order, etc). What's the proper way to do this to make sure the action doesn't get triggered a second time during the strategy run time?

    Thanks

    Hi RT001,

    OnStateChange() when State is State.DataLoaded is the proper place for that.
    "Initialize any class level variables (including custom Series<T> objects)"

      Thanks Chelsea! Is there a way to do this in the strategy builder, before I unlock the code? I will finish the script by editing the code but I'd like to establish the basics with the strategy builder if possible.

        Hello RT001,

        Yes, the Strategy Builder will instantiate class level objects in State.DataLoaded, and you will not be able to change this.
